You just have to get over the waiting time. Go a hour or so before you want to eat (we were under an hour waiting) and have a beer or two whilst they're cooking. The food is worth the wait... Better than anything we found on the beach. Stir fry blue crab with curry powder - amazing. Prawn Penang - best I've had.

A great place if you find the food on the beach a bit too 'adjusted to the western palate'. That said, with each dish they ask you if you want it mild, medium or spicy. When they say spicy, they aren't kidding! It's a fantastic explosion of spice and flavour.

We stay on Lanta every year for a couple of months and eat at Kritsana at least three times a week.The Thai food is truly the best quality and value for money on the island. At least 50% of the customers are regulars ( residents/long stays/ language schools/ dive school staff) who know their food and know that the waiting time is worth it. Can't imagine why anyone would be in a hurry on Lanta!! If you want burger,egg and chips go somewhere else. If you don't want to wait too long arrive before 7pm or after 9pm .

Food here is great value for money and really tasty, but in the evenings you might have to wait for over an hour for your dish. For lunchtime it might be a better option; the service is slightly faster then. Try their green curry! <3

You might have to wait a while for your food, but thats not a bad thing as everything is made on the spot.

Very atmospheric restaurant with fantastic local food.

Yes, the service is slow but the food is definitely worth the wait. Best Thai food we ate in Koh Lanta!
